The Weight of Water — Sarah Crossan

 

Hello there,

Long time no see! 🙂 Just wanted to have a “record” of my jumbled thoughts on this book. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first book I’ve ever read which is written completely in verse. I’m not quite sure what advantage it has over prose, though, after reading it, I’m starting to question the whole point of writing in prose at all… at least for books in the contemporary genre. As for the story itself, it was interesting and compelling. I can’t point out anything in particular which stuck out to me, but I remember being struck by how perceptive young children (i.e. Kasienka) can be, much more than we give them credit for. Would recommend if you are looking for something easy to read, but with some substance. (Also a quick reading update: I reread Glitter and Glue and enjoyed my time reading it. I’ve only now realised I do not have a review on this blog for it, so watch out for it soon!)

Happy reading
